Bill 168, An Act to amend the Occupational Health and Safety Act with respect to violence and harassment in the workplace and other matters , was given Royal Assent on December 15, 2009 and came into force on June 15, 2010. The act focuses on violence and domestic violence in the workplace, while giving a nod to existence of workplace harassment without either defining it clearly or acknowledging the fact that workplace harassment, more often than not, is instigated by the employer as a very cruel means of getting rid of employees while ruining both their personal and professional reputations and ensuring they can't work ...

We've all worked for the boss from hell. The guy who's oily-nice to you one day, then tells you the next that you're an idiot, that trained monkeys could do your job, and do it better, screams it actually, in front of all your co-workers. You probably thought there was little you could do, except put up and shut up. You're not alone. Those being bullied, studies say, endure the abuse for an average of 23 months until it ends, badly, with the target being fired or quitting in some 70 percent of cases. It's a serious problem (one in six American workers is targeted each year, according to a Michigan study) ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Traits of a successful leader on this Independence Day
Having just returned from visiting Mt. Vernon and a number of other historical sites on the East Coast, my thoughts turned to Independence Day and leadership crucibles. In my early career, I was fortunate to know and interact with leaders who inspired me and became an influence for the rest of my life. Though things have changed a lot since I was young, one thing is still true: Leaders must inspire their people in the workplace if they are to succeed. Ken Blanchard, author and management guru, once remarked “In the past a leader was a boss. Today’s leaders must be partners with their people they no longer can lead based on ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Back in 2007 I was the target of a workplace bully. There are still ongoing repercussions related to the incident, but the simplest explanation is that I spoke out and faced serious consequences. There were other people people being bullied, but they said nothing. Considering that this individual was eventually terminated, those that kept quiet fared better than I did, but the troubling part is that the problem was never addressed. The only thing that changed is that the bully is working at a different organization. In leadership we talk about workplace bullying, and there are anti-bullying initiatives, but can this issue ...
